Elizabeth has worked with many people on realigning their skills, responsibilities, and actions with natural sources of motivation and expertise.  Read about three such cases, below.

Transition into Technical Management

When an engineer becomes a manager, they often find the transition difficult as managing others is not a skill that is developed while being an engineer.  Often, a new manager experiences a huge shift in their core responsibility without much prior training on how to motivate and lead a team.

Zheng has been a software engineer for 8 years, changing jobs several times.  When she came to Integrative Leadership Strategies she had been at her current firm for the last year and a half.  She was feeling disconnected from her life resulting in a loss of motivation and lack of direction in her work.  She was looking for a way to create a space in her life to be able to be inspired and creative rather than deadline and anxiety driven.
